Hello All,

I have been doing Paleo for about 3 months now, I did have a binge last week but am back on track. This week I started taking birth control ( haven't been on it for almost 2 1/2 years) and got back on track with Paleo. Everyday, I have been having really bad stomach aches, head aches and head rushes( all are off and on). I think this could be due to the week off and then getting right back on the wagon but I keep thinking that starting these two things both at the same time is what's making me feel like death. Any thoughts?

I had stopped taking it due to losing my job and not having insurance. I have to be on the pill though due to medical issues (horrible cysts). I did explain my eatting habits to my doctor and she doesn't feel that I need to stop taking it. The birth control that I do take (Seasonique) has always been awesome for me but i'm hoping that what i am feeling is just from detoxing and starting the pill at the same time.

agreed @Mathgirl72, I recently STOPPED taking mine, (after getting back on it because a doctor convinced me to as I hadnt gotten my period in 6 months without it) as I realized trying to heal my gut and taking birth control are counter productive (not to mention I have zero libido from taking birth control). I have read a lot of stories on here on how women were able to regulate their period just by sticking to the diet, so I am hoping that is what happens with me! Why did you get back on birth control after 2 1/2 years?

BCP screws with your hormones. Look at the list of possible side effects. It should make you shudder.
